Celebrities React To The Death Of Muhammad Ali
Late Friday night (June 3), the world lost a legend. Muhammad Ali was more than just a boxer. Ali was a humanitarian, a man of conviction and an inspiration to so many. Parkinson’s disease robbed Ali of so much, including his voice, but his influence on the world has never been passive or silent; his character spoke volumes. The hole in our hearts, once filled by the joy and the spirit of the greatest there ever was, will always remain empty.
While we are all searching for ways to move forward, many have taken to social media to share memories and express their grief. Below are the most moving posts made by celebrities.
He shook up the world, and the world’s better for it. Rest in peace, Champ. pic.twitter.com/z1yM3sSLH3

Today my heart goes out to a pioneer, a true legend, and a hero by all means! Not a day went by entering the gym that I didn’t think of you. Your charisma, your charm and above all, your class are all of the elements that will be greatly missed by myself and the world. You are someone that inspired me greatly throughout my boxing journey and words cannot express how great you were as a person! Thank you for everything you’ve done for Black America, in the the world of sports & entertainment and for the legacy you leave behind! My sincerest condolences to the Ali family!
